Big K.R.I.T., whose space-themed 2014 sophomore effort Cadillactica (Def Jam) “shines like a supernova,” is “one of the most gifted rappers living on this wretched ball of blue called Earth.” (Billboard) He’ll have to bring his A-game; the “hyper lyrical” phenomenon Angel Haze has proven that “she can go toe-to-toe with any young rapper when it comes to flow and punchlines.” First up is the Brooklyn-born choreographer and flexing pioneer Reggie “Regg Roc” Gray’s The D.R.E.A.M Ring, a crew of local dancers who recently performed a showcase at the Park Avenue Armory that “at first amazes and then glides into the mystical.” (NY Times)
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
